When it comes to travel, many come home with a collection of things to save ticket stubs, postcards, brochures, maps and more. Why not curate something fun to collect and house all of those mementos along with jotting down your thoughts and memories?



There are several ways to approach journaling, so I suggest getting what speaks most to you.Here is what I purchased.

Watercolor Journal
Water Resistant Pen
Watercolor Brush
Watercolor Paints
Glue Stick
Bag for Carrying

If you choose not to use watercolors, you can certainly purchase any kind of journal. Use colored pencils, fine tipped markers, pastels or even crayons (why not?) to pepper color throughout your travel journal.





Basically from there, you can do whatever inspires you! Draw what you see and fill it in. Just use watercolor. Add in paper mementos and receipts. Save postcards. It's your journal... make it beautiful as you see fit. Here are pages from mine below.





And photos from an artsy friend of mine:

Thank you for sharing your tutorial!  I travel a lot and always collect to journal later (which somehow never happens), for my next trip I'm totally going to try some of your tips Smiley
